Heifer International & Nutfield Greeting Cards
Hello, friends. I am so excited to have completed the design for my Heifer International fund raising effort! If you aren't familiar with Heifer International, please visit their website to learn more about their mission to end worldwide hunger and caring for the Earth.
I hope to raise some money for this worthy charity by selling holiday/seasonal greeting cards using pieces of my handwoven lace. A set of 2 cards will be sold for $7, with $5 from each sale going to Heifer International. $2 will be kept to cover material and shipping expenses. I would love to be able to raise funds to buy some honeybees or tree seedlings. Who knows? I hope that I sell enough to keep things hopping around here and will put my boys to work helping me out at the post office!
I finished weaving my shawls, and should be getting off of the computer so that I can hang the shawls to dry. Halcyon Yarn also delivered my latest order today as well -- willow green weaving yarn. I can't wait to see how it weaves up! The color looks yummy.
Be well, Kate
